"since a picture paints..." = "as a picture paints..."

The two nouns in the sentence "A picture paints a thousand words" are 'picture' and 'words'. 'Paints' is a verb and in this sentence 'thousand' is an adjective, describing the number of words. 'A' is an article (which incidentally is a special adjective!)

Test was done for the third time on 25th November 2010. From the 1-23 tests was deleted three times.Don't you think that's a bit so much?

Hello Mister Micawber,

I would like to ask for your advice. Yesterday, before yesterday, and 3 days ago and few month ago I did the English Slang Idioms. Yesterday I had to do again only about 23 tests and my score-board was OK. My picture was there. But this evening my 34 picture disappeared from the score-board, / as if I didn't do them/ although I did them again four times altogether. I know there is no point, but I am in a difficult situation.

What is your opinion?
Regards:
Kati svaby
